Religion, Morality, and the Death of the American Soap Opera

Interesting article underpinning the role of religious or moral ethics in daytime soap operas. While that moral line has most definitely blurred over the past decade or two, the author's conclusion still stands.

If we remember the soap opera solely as a torrid celebration of sexual transgression, or as a frivolous time-waster for bored housewives, we miss understanding something crucial about the relationship between popular culture and morality.

I also liked how she pointed out that shows like True Blood are an indication of the success of serial drama in general. :lol: It's not... the most "Christian" and family-friendly show on the dial, is it.
